Miranda Kerr admits she was "crazy" not to have an epidural during her labor

The Victoria's Secret model gave birth to baby son Flynn – who weighed in at over 10 lbs – in January and although she stuck to her world by not having any painkilling drugs, she now wishes she did because the pain was so bad.

Miranda – whose husband Orlando Bloom was with her throughout the delivery - said: "I remember looking at Orlando and saying, 'Oh honey.'

'And he said, 'Give me the epidural! Seriously, if you don't want it I'll take it because right now I'm dying watching you go through this pain.'

"I didn't realize Flynn was going to be such a big baby.

"I had made the decision to not have any drugs, no epidural, nothing. Each to their own. I'm crazy for doing that! A lot of my friends who have had epidurals have said, 'Oh (labor) was so great.' "

The 28-year-old catwalk beauty also revealed that while she hasn't ruled out having more children in the future, she just wants to enjoy Flynn for the moment.

Speaking on Australian TV show 'Sunday Night', she said: "I always thought I would have three. Right now I'm just trying to enjoy Flynn.

"They say the first three years are the most important, so I want to make sure that he gets the attention and the nurturing and love that he really needs. So we'll see what happens."
